Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland and plays a key role in regulating the body’s circadian rhythms, endocrine secretions and sleep patterns. It also plays an essential role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance and supports the body with strong antioxidant activity. This formulation is available as a 10 mg tablet for flexible dosing.
Melatonin is primarily produced by the pineal gland but also in the bone marrow, platelets, GI tract, eyes, skin and lymphocytes. Its chemical precursor is serotonin, a neurotransmitter derived from tryptophan. Serotonin must be acetylated and methylated to form melatonin. Synthesis and production of melatonin is affected by light exposure to the eyes; serum concentrations of melatonin are typically low during the daytime hours and increase as night falls. Since it has important effects on circadian rhythms, melatonin has also been reported to have significant effects on reproduction in addition to sleep-wake cycles and antioxidant function.
